The picturesque town of Gränna with its steep streets and rows of traditional wooden houses has a flourishing tourism industry and a creative atmosphere with plenty of entrepreneurs and retailers. Many are familiar with Gränna’s tradition of making irresistible red and white peppermint candy canes and may also know of Salomon August Andrée, who attempted to fly a hydrogen balloon over the North Pole. “The idyllic setting of Gränna is special, and our school with boarding houses feels exactly the same – small and familiar,” says headmaster Anders Brage. “As the school grows over the years, the familiar atmosphere and close bonds between students and teachers remain.”
